The Aboriginal Participation in Construction (APIC) Policy has been developed to support greater participation by Aboriginal people in government construction projects across NSW. The aims of the policy are consistent with OCHRE (Opportunity, Choice, Healing, Responsibility and Empowerment) – the NSW Government’s plan to improve outcomes for Aboriginal people across all sectors of the community. OCHRE recognises the need for a new approach and direction to support Aboriginal Economic Development across NSW, built on the strengths of the State’s Aboriginal communities and their long history of successful enterprise and trade as part of their own economic systems.
